The most amazing thing about this film is that this was shot on ZERO budget alone by a single guy and the equipment used was merely an entry level DSLR and a cheap, Chinese lens he borrowed from his friend and was edited on an old core 2 duo PC (Those 12-year-old computers) but still, this film looks like something straight out of Hollywood! Hassaan, himself shot, edited and produced this heart touching film although he has never learned filmmaking from anywhere except youtube!

Hassaan encourages young Pakistani filmmakers to pursue their passions with whatever equipment they have! Breathtaking films can be made even with zero rupees in your pocket! There are a thousand stories out there waiting to be covered!
